"This is the city's first synchronic and updated IT technology e-Government system. It will help improve transparency and efficiency among State agencies as well as prevent bureaucratic procedural delays," Son said.

The city has also offered wireless internet (wifi) free services, with a maximum of 20,000 connections at a time for locals and tourists at major centres and streets in the city, including living quarters, schools and beaches. These services will also be available at tourist sites, hospitals and shopping malls apart from bus and railway stations, airport and entertainment centres.

The city has also introduced a paperless administration office in Lien Chieu district to ease the manual procedures for the locals. — VNS
